Laser Hair Removal
Learn more about Laser Hair Removal at SkinMedix Hermosa Beach
Our Practice is pleased to offer The Light Sheer Duet and The Candela YAG to safely & effectively treat unwanted hair. Simply put, laser hair removal works by focusing laser energy on the treatment area where the unwanted hair is growing. The hair follicle then absorbs the heat and energy from the laser, causing heat trauma, which causes the hair to shed out and to stop growing in the treated follicle.
Who Performs the Treatment?
Your safety and satisfaction is of the utmost importance to Dr Arnstein. At Skin-Medix we are proud to have a team of dedicated and experienced Registered Nurses & Nurse Practitioners on staff who provide results based treatments without compromising patient safety!
Will I need multiple Treatments?
Because hair grows in cycles, most people require 6 to 10 treatments every 4 – 6 weeks, although some people may require more or less treatments.
How to prepare for your procedure?
For the laser to work, there must be enough hair present in the follicle for the laser energy to be absorbed. Waxing and plucking should be avoided prior to your appointment and we ask that you shave the treatment area instead, especially on the day of your scheduled treatment. For your safety, avoiding sun exposure and self-tanners is a must prior to any laser treatment to avoid complications. Please let your Nurse know if you are taking any antibiotics or photosensitizing medications, as these can cause adverse reactions.
What will I experience during my procedure?
Safety glasses are provided to protect your eyes during the procedure. Cooling gel & packs are used before and after the treatment for patient comfort and safety. Numbing cream may be required by some patients, but is rarely needed. After the procedure is completed, your Nurse will apply hydrocortisone as needed and sunscreen to the treated areas.
What will my recovery be like?
Redness, swelling and some minor discomfort in the treated area and at the follicle site is common and usually resolves on its own within 3 to 5 days. Patients can treat any discomfort with creams or cold packs if needed. It is important to keep the laser exposed areas away from heat and sun exposure, so sunscreen is a must, especially after a treatment.
How long do results last?
Laser Hair Removal provides permanent hair reduction. Patients may need a touch-up treatment once or twice a year.
